Yoshi's New Island hits 3DS on 14th March in both Europe and North America, making it one of the earliest major first-party releases on the portable in 2014. As a sequel to the marvellous Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island on Super NES, it has a tough legacy to emulate.

But still, it's Yoshi, so we should try and look ahead with some optimism. Nintendo's released a new trailer that does show a bit more of the game in action, including footage of Yoshi hurling giant eggs and turning into different vehicles, in this case a mini truck and a helicopter.

We weren't particularly impressed in our Yoshi's New Island first impressions last June, but that feels like an age and (probably) a few builds ago. We'll be interested to see how this shakes up, but in the meantime check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
